People trust medical professionals to meet a high standard of care when providing medical treatment to their loved ones. That expectation is no different if that loved one is being treated at a hospital, clinic, long-term care facility, emergency room, assisted living facility, group home or home of residence.
Nevertheless, accidents happen. Thousands of disabled and elderly people are injured or die each year due to negligence in medical care, treatment or transport.
